My hook this week comes from a previously published work, Music for Her Soul. It follows the story of Ethan, a working musician, and Lena, a music professor and his ex-girlfriend. In this scene, Lena has arranged for a group of her students to perform at Calliope’s Jazz Club and guess who also has a gig there? And he’s playing the song he wrote for her.
Her head swam and she sank back into her chair, unable to tear her eyes away from him. The memory of his caress kindled old flames of desire and ignited new ones. Shifting uncomfortably in the hard, wooden chair, she cursed him not for her desires, but for the painful choice she had to make where he was concerned.
At last, the lights came up amid a series of claps and whistles. Ethan strode off stage and headed in her direction. Breathe, damn it. Her entire body tensed, bracing for the feel of his fingers heated by the vibrations of the trumpet’s keys to graze her skin.
An amorous pang clamped her thighs shut and she pressed her lips tightly together lest the sound of unmistakable want emerge without her consent.
“Did you enjoy that?” he whispered.
